Wild Flowers of the Victoria Falls Area
The first full colour photographic guide to the flowering plants of this World Heritage site. Concise descriptions of common and accessible herbaceous plants and small shrubs at the Falls and up to 40 km upstream in Zambia. The book has been written with the non-specialist in mind. Species accounts, of some 220 species from 70 families and 178 genera, are based on easy to observe characteristics and are illustrated by at least one colour photograph. The text describes the overall habit, leaves, flowers and, in most cases, the fruits of each species. Supplementary notes provide interesting facts about the origin of names and some practical uses of the plants. Includes an annotated map of area plus glossary.
